Research History

I have studied nuclear density distributions by means of proton elastic scattering.
Nuclear size and density distribution are fundamental properties of nucleus.
Proton-nucleus elastic scattering at intermediate energies is one of the suitable tools to deduce the density distribution.
Furthermore, the optical potential describing the scattering is one of the fundamental quantities of nuclear reactions because particles incident on the nucleus feel the optical potential at ?rst.
Therefore, precise and extensive measurements of the scattering are worthwhile to understand the nuclear structure, the reaction, and the related ?eld such as evolution of universe.

Research Plan at GCOE

We will develop a new technique to extract proton and neutron density distributions simultaneously.


A Lot of Livin' to Do.
